Ratings & Reviews

  • The Armstrong Lie wears thin before it's over; the wafer-thin nature of the cyclist's personality can't sustain a two-hour running time. show more

  • A quite absorbing but never riveting or revelatory overview of Armstrong’s career and testy personality. show more

  • An idol had fallen, and Gibney and the superb director of photography Maryse Alberti were there to capture the descent, including a confessional interview in which Armstrong blames the corruption of the game far more than himself. The movie rambles at two-plus hours, but the provocation never stops. show more
